Summer Term Moving Monsters
Making moving monster machines using pneumatics. Pneumatic systems use air under pressure to move. Tools and appliances driven by compressed air are known as pneumatic devices. The word pneumatic comes from the Greek pneuma, meaning “air” or “wind.” Examples of these devices are rock drills, jackhammers, spray painters, and air brakes. In some cases, air suction instead of compression is used to operate the tool or appliance, as in the familiar vacuum cleaner.
